A NONPARTISAN FORUM FOR VALUES-BASED LEADERSHIP
IDEAS

LEADERSHIP

The Aspen Institute has grown and evolved in many directions since its founding, but one thing has remained constant: it is a place where policymakers, writers, executives,
artists, and members of the public can come together to
explore the ideas and values underpinning society.

The Aspen Institute strives to create a diverse worldwide
community of leaders committed to the greater good.
“Good” has particular resonance at the Institute. The motivations, inspirations, and innovations from the people collected
around its tables are engaged in moving toward founder
Walter Paepcke’s focus on the “good society” – a continual
striving for improvement, individually and collectively, driven
by the ideas we explore and the actions we take.

It is more than a space for exploration, however. The Aspen
Institute is a place where the seeds of participants’ ideas
take root and grow. Nurtured by a back-and-forth of critical thought, reasoned response, and careful listening in a
diverse and nonpartisan setting, ideas resonate, echo, and
develop until they bloom beyond the confines of the conference room.
Our gatherings include people of different backgrounds,
ideologies, cultures, and areas of expertise. In a time of
heightened polarization and divisions, the Institute is an
island of stubborn civility, where people of many political
stripes and convictions can come together to listen to each
other as they can nowhere else. The Institute challenges our
participants to open their minds and listen.

2

The Institute’s brand of leadership lies in communication: it
fosters an environment where people can be candid, and
where they know that their ideas – even when controversial
– can be heard and respected. Preston Robert Tisch Award
honoree Darren Walker recently called the Institute an
“environment in which we assume everyone shares the best
intentions, and so we’re unafraid to challenge each other’s
ideas without impugning each other’s motives.” The open
exchange at the Institute allows people to find their most authentic voices – and use them to say exactly what they mean.
Much like our aspirations to reach the “good society,” the
process of becoming a leader never stops. The Aspen Institute provides a space for the ideas of leaders to take shape,
and for those leaders to return to their professional and
personal lives rejuvenated and inspired.

AND THE EXCHANGE OF IDEAS
ACTION
The Institute’s nonpartisan nature allows it to be a venue to
resolve specific issues: it is a place where dialogue can make a
tangible difference. Policy program convenings that introduce
business and government leaders to new ideas and to each
other lead to collaborations that can result in new businesses
and new laws. Events like the Resnick Aspen Action Forum, as
a prominent example, gather established and emerging leaders from across the United States, Central America, Africa, and
the globe to pause and reflect – and then move from thought
to action by making a pledge that commits them to making a
positive difference in the world.
And this is just one instance of the Aspen Institute spurring a
talented global group of leaders to use their skills and influence against the world’s challenges, leading toward transformative change. The Institute’s reports guide policy at the local,
national, and international level.
The Fellows who graduate from the Institute’s many leadership
initiatives return from Institute programs to dive head-first into
the challenges in their communities. The unique role the Aspen
Institute plays in the world is to create reflective, passionate,
and critical dialogue that allows leaders to turn their own ideas
into action.

POLICY PROGRAMS
ADVANCING PUBLIC POLICY
THROUGH DIALOGUE AND ACTION
www.aspeninstitute.org/policy-work

Aspen Institute policy programs provide nonpartisan forums for analysis, consensus
building, and problem solving on pressing contemporary public policy issues. They
frame critical topics, bring new evidence to bear on a wide range of issues, propose
innovative ideas, and gather leaders and experts to reach constructive solutions.
Each program serves as an impartial forum, and each is unique in its substance and
approach. Together they share a common mission and methodology: convening diverse
perspectives for informed dialogue and action.

"It can’t be good enough that my kids have access
[to playgrounds and recreational facilities] if the vast
majority of kids in our country don’t."

ASCEND AT THE ASPEN INSTITUTE
ascend.aspeninstitute.org

Ascend is the national hub for breakthrough ideas and collaborations to
move children and their parents toward educational success and economic security by embracing a two-generation approach and a commitment
to racial equity and viewing issues through a gender lens. Two-generation
approaches provide opportunities for and meet the needs of both children
and their parents. We believe that education, economic supports, social
capital, and health and well-being are the core components that create an
intergenerational cycle of opportunity. Ascend makes a difference in the lives
of children, parents, and families by elevating and investing in a portfolio of
solutions — informed by the voices of families and fueled by political will and
a national network of leaders.
ASPEN FORUM FOR COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS
www.aspencommunitysolutions.org

The program supports collaboration that enables communities to effectively
address their most pressing challenges. Its Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund
works to demonstrate higher rates of reconnection to education and employment among opportunity youth and future generations. The Aspen Forum’s
partnership with the Center for Community Change supports the Center’s
efforts to amplify the issue of intergenerational poverty by connecting grassroots leaders to top influencers in order to accelerate the reduction of poverty across America. Most recently, the Aspen Forum launched the 100,000
Opportunities Initiative in partnership with Starbucks, the Schultz Family Foundation, and others to create the nation’s largest employer-led private sector
coalition focused on helping young people build skills and attain credentials
while connecting them to employment opportunities.

"One of the greatest threats to economic
growth is concentration of wealth. It’s about
growing the economic pie. The arguments
of the last twenty years have been about
who gets the biggest piece. But if you grow
the pie? Everyone does better."
­— Vice President Joe Biden, keynote speaker at the
Aspen Summit on Inequality and Opportunity

ASPEN GLOBAL HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT
www.aspeninstitute.org/ghd

Aspen Global Health and Development promotes breakthrough solutions
to global development challenges by bringing leaders together to share
and advance innovative practices and evidence-based solutions, working to
replicate successful local practices at a global level, and strengthening the
capacity of developing world leaders to champion and act on these solutions.
GHD is a force for fresh thinking, unlikely collaborations, and brave action
within the global health and development field. The Aspen Global Health and
Development team works across nations and sectors to promote solutions for
global health, poverty, and inopportunity. The program leverages the power
of narrative, amplifies voices on the ground, and holds strategic convenings
of high-level executives and thought leaders. The program’s breakthrough
ideas include: empowering leaders and strengthening health systems in
the Aspen Management Partnership for Health; bringing artisan enterprises
to scale through the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise; elevating the voices of
trailblazing leaders from the developing world in the New Voices Fellowship
program; and producing Spotlight Health, the world’s premier creative health
forum at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
ASPEN INSTITUTE CITIZENSHIP AND AMERICAN IDENTITY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/citizenship

In a time of rising inequality and rapidly increasing diversity, the question of
what it means to be American — and how we create a unifying story of “us” —
is of prime consequence. The Aspen Program on Citizenship and American
Identity explores this question through a range of cross-ideological activity,
from public forums to leadership convenings to seminars. We focus on three
aspects of citizenship: values, systems, and skills. The values segment focuses
on articulating and updating the creedal and cultural content of American
civic identity. The systems segment includes policy proposals and projects
to build social cohesion. The skills segment teaches leaders to construct
coalitions and a sense of shared fate across increasingly rigid class and race
divides. Two of our core projects are What Every American Should Know, an
initiative to build civic and cultural literacy in America, and the Pluribus Project, which aims to generate narratives of citizen power.
ASPEN INSTITUTE LATINOS AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/latinos-society

The Latinos and Society Program is focused on increasing the understanding
of and improving outcomes for the growing US Latino population. The program
convenes meaningful dialogues among cross-sections of society with a focus
on influencing positive outcomes, infusing the work of the Aspen Institute with
Latino voices and ideas, and developing Latino leadership capacity.
As the largest minority group in the US (projected to reach 26 percent of the
population by 2050) and as a relatively young and rapidly growing popula-

ANDE supports small and growing businesses including ones that tackle youth unemployment, such
as the India-based Medha (pictured) to boost global prosperity. (Photo courtesy of Medha)

tion, Latinos will be entering our schools, health systems, and labor force at
unprecedented rates. Their success or failure will affect the direction of the
country, and their participation and representation in all sectors of society
and leadership is critical to our democracy. Our work emphasizes a particular
focus on educational achievement, economic advancement, and civic participation. The Institute is also planning to launch a Latino Leadership Initiative
focused on developing the next generation of entrepreneurial, civic-minded
Latino leaders and equipping them to improve their communities by undertaking leadership projects and contributing to America’s future.
ASPEN NETWORK OF DEVELOPMENT ENTREPRENEURS
www.aspeninstitute.org/ande

The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs is a global network of
organizations that propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets. ANDE
members provide critical financial, educational, and business support services
to small and growing businesses based on the conviction that they will create
jobs, stimulate long-term economic growth, and produce environmental and
social benefits. Ultimately, we believe that these businesses can help lift countries out of poverty. ANDE members include capacity development providers,
corporations, development finance institutions, donor agencies, foundations,
investment funds, and research and academic institutions from around the
world. Launched with 34 members in 2009, ANDE now comprises more than
240 members who collectively operate in more than 150 countries. ANDE
has regional chapters in Brazil, Central America-Mexico, East Africa, East and
Southeast Asia, India, South Africa, and West Africa.

ASPEN PLANNING AND EVALUATION PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/apep

Aspen Planning and Evaluation Program helps clients plan and evaluate efforts to shape public policy and promote changes in attitudes and behavior.
Program staff and consultants work internally with other Institute programs,
as well as with foundations and nongovernmental organizations based in
the US, Africa and Europe to assess their advocacy and social change efforts.
Recent APEP clients address issues as diverse as reducing the incidence of
child marriage worldwide, improving the practices of microfinance providers, empowering women and girls in Kenya, and promoting a new vision
for American public libraries. The program also leads the Institute’s internal
program review process.
ASPEN STRATEGY GROUP
www.aspeninstitute.org/asg

How can America’s national security establishment better adapt to nascent
threats and challenges? As current global trends defy traditional notions of
international relations, what common problems do nations face in the 21st
century? This program focuses on transnational issues that blend foreign and
domestic subjects. Founded in 1984 with a concentration on strategic relations, arms control issues, and the US-Soviet relationship, its roots date back
to the 1970s as an annual conference for researchers associated with arms
control projects at universities and think tanks. As the group evolved, it grew
to include legislators, government officials, business and industry representatives, and journalists. The current program has moved beyond its Cold War
origins and today spans three generations
of policymakers representing a range of
perspectives. The approach, however, has
remained constant: to use a bipartisan
lens to identify the most contentious foreign policy and national security concerns
facing our nation, and to assess America’s
evolving interests. Recent workshops,
briefings, and reports have covered
the rise of radicalism in the Middle
East (left), the crisis with Russia, the
future of American defense, cybersecurity, American interests in South Asia, the
national security implications of climate
change, and the challenge of nuclear
proliferation. The Aspen Ministers Forum
and Track II dialogues with Brazil, China,
and India are also convened under the
auspices of the Aspen Strategy Group.

BUSINESS AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/bsp

Business and Society Program cultivates leaders, influences business education, and creates the conditions for long-term capitalism. Established in
1998 and building on more than 60 years of Aspen Institute programming,
the program believes business is vital to solving our most challenging global
problems. Its mission is to build the courage and conviction of business
leaders to act in the best interests of society. The program’s First Movers
Fellowship for social “intrapreneurs” – exceptional business innovators who
are integrating profitability and social value into their companies – provides
a reflective space for Fellows to share practices, gain courage, and acquire
tools to lead change. Its Leaders Forum engages senior executives who are
pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a socially, environmentally,
and economically sustainable company. Aspen BSP is also home to several
signature programs for vanguard business educators, including CasePlace.
org, Faculty Pioneers, and an undergraduate network linking the liberal arts
and business. These programs highlight cutting-edge teaching and research
on social and environmental stewardship.
CENTER FOR NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH
www.cnay.org

Created by former US Senator Byron Dorgan, Center for Native American
Youth is aimed at bringing greater national attention and fostering solutions
to the issues facing American Indian and Alaska Native youth, our nation’s
most at-risk population. Despite the efforts of tribal governments and advocates, difficult conditions — including high rates of unemployment, poverty,
alcohol and substance abuse, crime, and health disparities — persist in many
tribal communities. CNAY brings together Native youth, tribal leaders, and
organizations in the public and private sector through roundtables, summits,
and events held throughout Indian Country; houses a youth leadership program inspired by a White House initiative called Champions for Change; and,
most recently, partnered with the White House to launch a network aimed at
removing barriers between Native youth and their opportunities to succeed.
COLLEGE EXCELLENCE PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/college-excellence

Over the past 50 years, increased college access has benefited millions of
Americans, but now the nation must get more students through college with
the skills and abilities needed for success after graduating. The program
identifies and accelerates the implementation of practices and policies that
improve and make more equitable student access and success in learning,
completion rates, and post-graduation employment. Several of the program’s
initiatives relate to community colleges, including the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, which awards one million dollars biennially to the
nation’s best community colleges and works to replicate exceptional college

outcomes nationwide, and the Aspen Presidential Fellowship for Community
College Excellence. Extending the program’s reach into the four-year sector,
projects are addressing community college to university transfer, the future
of the college presidency, and socioeconomic diversity at top American colleges and universities.
COMMUNICATIONS AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/c&s

This program serves as a venue for global leaders and experts to exchange
insights on the societal impact of advances in digital technology and network communications. It also creates a safe space in the policymaking world
where veteran and emerging decision-makers can explore new concepts and
develop policy networks. The program convenes approximately 10 leadership roundtables each year on subjects such as artificial intelligence, Internet
governance, institutional innovation, spectrum policy, race and media, and
diplomacy and technology. The program also conducts ongoing projects on
the future of public libraries and on connected learning. Leaders from across
disciplines and perspectives engage in moderated discussions that culminate
in specific conclusions and recommendations. The program distributes conference reports to key policymakers and opinion leaders around the world
and to the public online.

make the retail sector a more vibrant
employment sector – a place where not
only people come in and get a good start,
but they can move up and gain new skills
and move into positions of authority within
the sector and even beyond? How can we
accelerate that mobility?"

COMMUNITY STRATEGIES GROUP
www.aspeninstitute.org/csg

This group helps leaders in rural and urban communities create more vibrant
regions that advance and sustain prosperity and well-being for local people,
places, and firms, always including those on the economic margins. Community Strategies Group helps community leaders connect with and motivate
each other. It equips them with the best ideas, tools, and strategies to improve
community and family economic results. The group’s hallmark approach is
tailored, peer-to-peer exchanges in which community-based leaders advise
each other and create immediate back-home action plans. CSG also brings
together practitioners and residents in specific geographic regions to collaborate and find common aims, and connects community innovators with regional
and national experts and funders. It distills community lessons into action
guides, good-practice profiles, virtual peer-learning exchanges, and online
resources. CSG builds and manages multiple networks of community-based
practitioners and regional leaders from across the country who are focused on
advancing family economic success, community development philanthropy,
and wealth-building approaches to regional economic development.
CONGRESSIONAL PROGRAM

This is a nonpartisan, public policy education and civility-building program for
members of the US Congress in which more than 30 percent of the current
Congress has participated. At a time of Congressional gridlock and extreme
partisanship, the program offers Republican and Democratic legislators the
opportunity to explore policy alternatives and to learn from internationally recognized academics and experts. It assists legislators in developing a
deeper understanding of public policy options and the personal relationships
necessary to help Congress meaningfully address our nation’s problems.
Although the program does not endorse specific legislation, for more than
three decades it has provided a forum for discussion of policy issues that has
often sown the seeds for significant policy initiatives. Current subjects include
international economic and security issues; extremism; energy security; policy
challenges in Africa; economic issues affecting the developing world; and US
policy with regard to Russia, NATO, Asia, and the Middle East. The program is

funded solely by foundations, and it annually sponsors two dozen breakfast
meetings and four conferences for members of Congress. No lobbyists, congressional staff, or outside observers are permitted, and the House and Senate
ethics committees review all conference agendas. The program also has a
parallel educational effort as a resource for key congressional staff to analyze
the most effective policies to deliver foreign development assistance.
ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/eop

The primary mission of the Economic Opportunities Program is to advance
promising strategies and policies to help low- and moderate-income Americans thrive in today’s dynamic economy. Over its more than 20 years of work,
the program has focused on expanding individuals’ opportunities to develop their skills and capabilities, build professional networks and connect to
quality work, start businesses, and build assets and economic stability. EOP
staff work closely with national and local leaders – practitioners, policymakers,
employers, thought leaders, and advocates – to illuminate and encourage
policies and practices with the potential to help lower-income Americans
succeed. EOP has particular expertise in workforce training and education,
microenterprise development and business ownership, and financial services
and asset building. To support these fields, EOP staff conduct evaluations and
applied research to learn what works and to document it, facilitate leadership
development and capacity-building opportunities, and communicate related
issues and promising approaches to broad and diverse audiences.
EDUCATION AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/education

The program works to improve public education by inspiring, informing, and
influencing education leaders across policy and practice, with an emphasis on achieving equity for traditionally underserved students. It facilitates
important conversations informed by research, experience, and divergent
perspectives. The program also convenes workshops and roundtable discussions to develop concrete solutions to complex problems for federal, state,
and local policymakers and their staffs; education leaders at all levels, from
superintendents to teachers; and researchers. The program produces reports
that inform national policy debates, and tools and resources that deepen and
accelerate the work of our partner states and districts.
ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/ee

Energy and Environment convenes thought leaders and experts in roundtable
dialogues and forums designed and moderated for exploration and consensus building. The program provides a congenial setting for constructive
discussion on complex energy and environmental policy issues that deepens
knowledge, broadens perspectives, and enhances leaders’ problem-solving
capacities. At annual energy forums, participants explore different aspects of
energy markets, environmental policy, and relevant global developments.

The 40th anniversary of the Aspen Energy Policy Forum, focused on the domestic power sector, took place in Aspen in July 2016. The program’s efforts to
advance cross-sector understandings of global environmental challenges also
include smaller roundtable dialogues on food security, ocean and wildlife conservation, sustainable development, water, clean energy, and climate change.
FINANCIAL SECURITY PROGRAM
www.aspenfsp.org, www.aspenepic.org

The Aspen Financial Security Program is dedicated to solving the most critical
financial challenges facing America’s households, and to creating a more inclusive and prosperous economy in which all Americans have the opportunity
to save, invest, and own. We work at the intersection of policy and financial
markets, using an array of strategic dialogues, briefings, and publications
to build consensus among industry leaders, policymakers, and consumer
advocates for breakthrough solutions that help hardworking families meet
short-term needs and achieve their long-term financial goals. Our own goal
is to foster effective public policies and help shape the rapidly evolving financial system to reduce wealth inequality and improve the financial security of
all Americans.
GLOBAL ALLIANCES PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/gap

This program was established in response to the increasing need for and
reliance on public-private alliances to take on challenges the public sector
is unequipped to tackle on its own. The program has partnered with the US
Department of State to encourage US cooperation and investment in business and communities across the globe. Partnership Opportunity Delegations
11

are deployed according to local communities’ priorities, and result in business-to-business and people-to-people partnerships. To date, opportunity
delegations have gone to Colombia, Cuba, Myanmar, and Tanzania. Delegations to Cuba, Myanmar, Israel/Palestine, and Iran are planned. The program
has also partnered with the Department of Defense to foster a culture of
innovation and learning within the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The
New Ideas @ OSD series brings experts from outside the national security
field to the Pentagon to consult with Defense leadership on how to shape
policy in ways that are innovative, adaptive, and effective in a changing and
complex global security environment. By convening and facilitating partnerships between the US public and private sectors as well as their international
counterparts, the Global Alliances Program strives to build equitable and
sustainable relationships between communities and to foster greater development and prosperity.
HEALTH, MEDICINE AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/health

The Health, Medicine and Society program creates opportunities for government, industry, academic, and advocacy leaders to explore critical issues in
health, health care, medical science, and health policy in the US. It facilitates
knowledge exchanges and advances strategic thinking among decision
makers through nonpartisan, multi-disciplinary public policy programs and
dialogue, including roundtables, briefings, conferences, and Internet forums.
These convenings encourage collaborative networks among leading policymakers, health professionals, scientists, and advocates in a broad range of
fields, while helping to inform and advance policies to improve the health of
individuals, families, communities, the nation, and the world. In 2015, in partnership with the Global Health and Development Program, the program again
designed and hosted Spotlight Health, now the lead-in session to the annual
Aspen Ideas Festival. HMS also launched the Aspen Health Strategy Group,
which brings together some of the sharpest minds in the nation to identify
and promote strategies to address America’s most complex and controversial
health challenges. In addition, work continues on forming a biomedical innovation initiative and providing a unique Public Health Grand Rounds program
series. Progress in establishing new partnerships and alliances also continues,
as do HMS’s ongoing efforts to collaborate with other Institute policy programs by helping them bring a focus on health to their work.
HOMELAND SECURITY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/security

Years have passed since 9/11, yet holes remain in America’s defenses against
terrorism, heightening the risk of another attack. This program identifies gaps
in the nation’s defenses against terrorism and recommends ways to close
them. Through reports, roundtable discussions, Congressional testimony, and
forums, it strives to convince policymakers, industry leaders, and the public at
large to reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism.

JUSTICE & SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/justice

For four decades, the Justice & Society
Program has convened individuals from
diverse backgrounds to discuss the
meaning of justice and how a just society
ought to balance fundamental rights
with the exigencies of public policy
in order to meet contemporary social
challenges and strengthen the rule of
law. Through our public programming
component —periodic roundtables at
the Institute’s Washington office and
presentations by leading jurists — we
bring to the table public officials, established and emerging opinion leaders,
and grassroots organizers to share their
perspectives in a neutral and balanced
forum. Recent and ongoing multi-year
projects focus on law and policy issues,

annual Justice and Society Seminar, held in Aspen and co-founded by the
late US Supreme Court Associate Justice Harry A. Blackmun, continues to be
led by preeminent judges and law professors. The Justice Circle, an exclusive
group of Justice & Society Program supporters co-chaired by Tristan Duncan
and Steve Susman, was launched in January 2014. Through the Circle, friends
of the program maintain an ongoing connection to our work and enjoy special events.
PROGRAM ON PHILANTHROPY AND SOCIAL INNOVATION
www.aspeninstitute.org/psi

This program hosts the Aspen Philanthropy Group, an agenda-setting body of
foundation leaders at the cutting edge of change that seeks to maximize the
impact of social-sector leaders in contributing to the good society at home
and abroad. It spurs dialogue among leaders from the private, public, and
social sectors in convenings, leadership development initiatives, strategic partnerships, and through communications. Among the program’s current working group series is the Nonprofit Data Working Group, an effort to ensure high
quality and accessible statistical data on social sector activity. Leadership development initiatives include the American Express-Aspen Institute Fellowship
for Emerging Nonprofit Leaders, the Aspen Philanthropy Seminar, and the
Seminar for Mid-America Foundation CEOs. The program’s Artist-Endowed
Foundations Initiative strengthens the next generation by increasing their
capacity to fulfill their donors’ charitable intentions. The program’s policy work
includes the Impact Economy Initiative, which seeks to create an enabling en-

vironment for investments and enterprises that generate both financial profit
and positive social or environmental returns. The program hosts philanthropy
conferences including its upcoming Children First Philanthropy Forum, which
will engage philanthropists committed to advancing the health and well-being of children; and a conference on Advancing Equity through Opportunity,
which will use a deliberative process to build and broaden consensus among
philanthropists on ways to combat inequality.
PROGRAM ON THE WORLD ECONOMY
www.aspeninstitute.org/pwe

Begun in 1981, this program promotes sustainable economic growth and
financial stability in the world economy by convening prominent leaders from
both industrial and developing nations. It uses an interdisciplinary approach
to generate pragmatic solutions to major economic and financial challenges,
and to advance cooperation on key issues facing the global economic and
financial system.
ROUNDTABLE ON COMMUNITY CHANGE
www.aspeninstitute.org/rcc

"We cannot let terrorism prevent us
from living our lives and from enjoying a free and open society. Because
that is the goal of a terrorist actor: to
change us from a nation that is open
and outward looking, to a nation that is
frightened, inward-looking and one that
stops innovating and stops building."

The Roundtable on Community Change develops and implements strategies
that produce vibrant, racially equitable communities and promote the well-being of children, youth, and families. Through careful research, convening,
leadership programs, and working groups, the Roundtable builds knowledge
and capacity across sectors, disciplines, cultures, races, and generations.

SERVICE YEAR ALLIANCE
www.aspeninstitute.org/franklin-project

The Franklin Project, whose mission is to make a year of national service a cultural expectation and common opportunity for every young American, recently merged with two of its partners to create a single, new organization: Service
Year Alliance, a joint venture between the Institute and Be The Change,
Inc. While the Franklin Project will eventually phase out as a name, the idea
behind Franklin lives on—and is closer than ever to being realized,—thanks to
this merger. In the three-plus years since Franklin was structured as a policy
program at the Aspen Institute, it has accomplished a great deal: hundreds
more Americans serving in innovative new corps, and 300 employers representing 1.5 million jobs now value national service. The team inspired a new,
bold agenda for the national service field at two exciting summits. The idea
that a service year should be a shared experience for every young American
is more ingrained in our culture than ever before.
SPORTS AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.sportsandsociety.org

This program convenes leaders, fosters dialogue, and inspires solutions that
help sports serve the public interest. In 2015 it released one of the most-read
reports published by the Aspen Institute, "Sport for All, Play for Life: A Playbook to Get Every Kid in the Game," which offers a new model for youth sports
in America based on health and inclusion and identifies eight strategies that
eight sectors can align behind to give every kid the opportunity to get active
through sports. The report, hailed by US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy as a
“very powerful roadmap” for innovation and cross-sector collaboration, has
been used by a range of national organizations and city coalitions to introduce
or shape programs aimed at youth. The program also hosts the annual Project
Play Summit in Washington, DC, where 350 leaders gather to push forward the
movement around building healthy communities through sport.
STEVENS INITIATIVE
http://stevensinitiative.org/

The Stevens Initiative is an international public-private partnership designed to
increase people-to-people exchange between youth in the United States and
the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as a lasting tribute to the legacy of
Ambassador Chris Stevens. Virtual exchange uses technology to create a new
kind of virtual classroom, where students from different parts of the world learn
and work together through sustained interactions. The Initiative will conduct a
number of activities to increase cross-cultural understanding and build language, communication, digital literacy, problem-solving, and other skills young
people need to succeed in the 21st-century economy. In addition to managing
a series of grant competitions to scale impactful virtual exchange programs, the
Stevens Initiative will also raise awareness of the field; create a clearinghouse
of tools and resources; convene leaders and experts to spur innovation; and
strengthen evaluation, impact measurement, and research.

POLICY INITIATIVES
ASPEN INITIATIVE ON THE FUTURE OF WORK

The Future of Work Initiative is a year-long nonpartisan effort to identify concrete ways to strengthen the social contract in the midst of sweeping changes in
today’s workplace and workforce. The Initiative focuses on two critical opportunities: how to best advance and protect the economic interests of Americans
in the rapidly growing on-demand economy of shared goods and services,
and how to inspire a 21st-century capitalism for a 21st-century workforce by
rewarding employers for reducing inequality, helping workers get ahead, and
facilitating access to benefits and protections to secure workers’ futures.
NATIONAL COMMISSION ON SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL
AND ACADEMIC DEVELOPMENT

In 2016, the Aspen Institute launched this Commission to engage educators,
policymakers, and community and civic leaders in reframing what a successful
K-12 education means in the United States. Harnessing powerful new evidence
emerging from brain science, the Commission will raise awareness that developing social and emotional competencies and mindsets alongside academics
is crucial for preparing students to thrive in college and in an increasingly
complex workplace and world. The Commission will issue an action-oriented
roadmap for a new generation of public policy that supports teachers and
schools in cultivating the social and emotional development of all children, and
creates a research agenda to challenge scholars, university leaders, funders,
and think tanks to advance the field. A more formal announcement will follow
once the Commission has completed its strategic timeline.

LEADERSHIP INITIATIVES
ASPEN GLOBAL LEADERSHIP NETWORK
Spurring Entrepreneurial Leaders to
Move from Success to Significance
www.aspeninstitute.org/leadership

The Aspen Global Leadership Network is a worldwide community of successful, highintegrity, action-oriented leaders committed to making the world a better place.
Fellows are selected in groups of 20 to be part of one of 14 geographic or sectorspecific initiatives around the world — all modeled after the Aspen Institute flagship
Henry Crown Fellowship Program. They enter this experience having demonstrated a
great deal of personal success, and leave it inspired to make a significant mark on their
communities and the world. Fellowship gatherings provide space for introspection,
probing dialogue, and problem solving. Each Fellow is asked to bring his or her
leadership to bear on a pressing societal concern by launching a new project or
venture. Fellows are using their businesses and their positions to build pipelines for
ethical leadership, protect cultural heritage, promote environmental sustainability,
create new ventures and jobs, bridge the educational achievement gap, fight rare
diseases, stop ethnic violence, and connect rural people to global information.
Today, the Aspen Global Leadership Network numbers more than 2,200 Fellows in 49
countries and continues to grow. The Network connects Fellows through forums like
the online Fellow Exchange as well as regular events like the Resnick Aspen Action
Forum, an annual gathering that connects Aspen Global Leadership Network Fellows
and other leaders from Aspen Institute programs and partners, spurring them to move
from thought to action.

At the 2015 Aspen Action Forum, over 350 leaders from around
the world gathered to exchange ideas and take action on social
challenges their communities face. (Photo by Dan Bayer)

challenges of their countries. Founded in 2001 by four Henry Crown Fellows,
it is a collaborative venture of the Institute, the Databank Foundation (Ghana),
Infotech Investments (Tanzania), LEAP Africa (Nigeria), the Letsema Foundation (South Africa), and CETA Construction and Services (Mozambique). The

an independent nonprofit foundation.

This program, introduced in 2005 through the vision and support of Aspen
Institute Trustee Bill Budinger, seeks to strengthen US democracy by bringing

advance the positive impact of finance in society.

The Center for Urban Innovation bridges the gap between innovators and
underserved neighborhoods so that innovators can focus more attention on
community challenges, and neighborhood residents can bring their own new
ideas to life. The Center identifies the businesses and non-profits with the
most original and effective solutions to urban challenges, creates toolkits and
policies that help innovative minds to develop ideas that will improve the social and economic life for all city residents, and creates forums to encourage
the spread and replication of these ideas.
DC URBAN INNOVATION LAB
www.aspeninstitute.org/urban-innovation-lab

The Urban Innovation Lab harnesses the convening ability and policy
expertise of the Aspen Institute to directly advance the work of social entrepreneurs (Urban Innovators) that are working against a deep-rooted issue of
inequality and opportunity in the Washington, DC region. Selected Urban Innovators receive a customized support package that includes leadership and
organizational development, network expansion, and a platform to promote
their big ideas and vision. The Lab is, in effect, a learning organization to
better inform the Center for Urban Innovation’s effort to be a hub of networks
and ideas that are building a better future for all American cities.

POLICY LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
Born from the many policy programs at the Aspen Institute, Policy Leadership Programs seek to empower exceptional individuals
to lead with innovation in their chosen fields. As a result, these individuals then become more effective change agents who can

FIRST MOVERS FELLOWSHIP
www.aspeninstitute.org/firstmovers

Established in 2009 by the Business and Society Program, this fellowship is

meets a growing need for values-based business leaders who understand the
interdependency of business success and the long-term health of society.
ASCEND FELLOWSHIP
www.aspeninstitute.org/ascend

The Aspen Institute Ascend Fellowship invests in a new generation of leaders
who are committed to building an intergenerational cycle of opportunity.

solutions for advancing economic security, educational success, and health
and well-being for children, parents, and their families. Collectively, they will
fuel the dynamic national conversation around opportunity and inequality
and accelerate innovation and collaboration across communities and sectors.
The 18-month values-based Ascend Fellowship lifts up leaders who reflect the
diversity and talent of our country.

offers development experts from Africa and other parts of the developing
world a year-long program of media support, training, research, and writing
under the guidance of experienced mentors and trainers. The program will
help Fellows sharpen their messages, elevate their stories, focus their media

YOUTH & ENGAGEMENT PROGRAMS
EMPOWERING DIVERSE YOUNG PEOPLE TO
ENGAGE IN THE CRITICAL ISSUES OF THE DAY

www.aspeninstitute.org/programs/youth-and-engagement
Youth & Engagement Programs work directly with youth ages 14 to 24 to educate and develop
citizen leaders who mirror our nation’s diversity and to identify, nurture, and celebrate local
youth and their ideas to improve our communities. This new area of work and Institute focus
will also develop entrepreneurial approaches to engage youth in the key challenges of the day.
The intention is to create programming that is effective, scalable, and broadens the reach of the
Institute beyond the constituencies it currently serves. The division includes longstanding Aspen
Institute programs that work directly with youth as well as newly established programs.

"The American dream is a search for a better life. It’s not
morally correct to write someone off because they don’t

teams to hone their leadership skills as they develop innovative solutions to
critical societal challenges. In addition to Denver and Los Angeles, the Aspen
Challenge recently launched in Washington, DC and Chicago, with future
expansion cities including Philadelphia. At the 2015 Aspen Ideas Festival, five
high school teams presented their winning solutions to issues they faced in
their communities, including inequality, violence, the California drought, and
access to nutritious food.

A series of seminars hosted for teens in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley,

ASPENX
www.aspeninstitute.org/programs/aspenx/

A new, place-based, multi-site initiative that will develop the next generation
of local, purpose-driven youth leaders, the Young Leaders Fellowship builds
upon the Institute’s commitment to values-based, action-oriented leadership.
The program will spur selected Fellows to consider the values and perspectives necessary for effective and enlightened leadership in their communities
and in society at large. This program will create a diverse pipeline of talented,
young, local leaders who will collaborate on solutions to community problems and invest in their hometowns for years to come.

TEEN SOCRATES

The division is also working with a number of policy programs to create Youth
Advisory Boards to guide their work, including the newly announced National
Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development. Future Youth
& Engagement Programs projects include work on juvenile justice; youth
organizing; fast-pitch competitions for youth-led community solutions; a
national youth convening in Washington, DC; and partnerships with external
organizations to help build high-potential programs.

AspenX connects virtual learning on the Khan Academy platform with placebased convenings in the style of the traditional Aspen Seminar. High school
students in Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area met last year to
discuss privacy rights and American diplomacy in day-long sessions led by
Jeffrey Rosen, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center, and
Tara Sonenshine, former Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and
Public Affairs.
A forum for teens to convene and explore contemporary issues through
expert-moderated dialogue, Teen Socrates encourages all participants to engage and share their views. Last winter, teens met to learn about and discuss

www.aspeninstitute.org/seminars

Aspen Institute seminars help leaders reflect on timeless ideas and values. Through text-based
dialogue with expert moderators and accomplished peers, seminar participants refine
their tools of intellectual analysis, test the wellsprings of their convictions, and enhance
their capacities to think more creatively in solving the problems that confront society.

"Civility can only come about through the 'complex,
long-term, and never-ending work involving education
and self-education.' "

THE ASPEN SEMINAR
www.aspeninstitute.org/aspenseminar

For more than 60 years, this premier roundtable has challenged leaders in
every field to think more critically and deeply. The seminar is a unique opportunity to step away from the demands of the present and reflect with other
leaders in moderated, text-based Socratic dialogue on the concept of a good
and just society: What is it, how does it become a reality, and what is our role
in making it happen? The settings in Aspen, Colorado, and on Maryland’s
Eastern Shore are ideal for rejuvenating the mind, body, and spirit of participants, who emerge personally renewed and professionally refocused.

WYE ACADEMIC SEMINARS
www.aspeninstitute.org/seminars/wye

In a longstanding collaboration with the Association of American Colleges
and Universities, these seminars engage faculty, senior academic administrators, and college presidents in an exchange of ideas about education,
citizenship, and the global polity. Sessions address the need for a liberal
arts institution’s faculty and leadership to exchange ideas with colleagues
from other colleges and disciplines while exploring the ideas and values that
underlie their teaching. Modeled after the Aspen Seminar and offered at
the Institute’s Wye River campus, near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the
seminars focus on issues such as individual rights and responsibilities and the
public purpose of education.

“The Socrates Program helped me formulate the Big Idea I want to
pursue and develop. So few people in the world get a chance during
their lifetime to make a claim like that.”
­— Christian Filli, Socrates Scholar February 2015

CUSTOM SEMINARS
www.aspeninstitute.org/seminars/custom

Building on the Institute’s historic strength in professional development
through text-based dialogue, Custom seminars address specific leadership
issues facing major corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Seminars are led by skilled moderators who help organizational
teams identify and align fundamental institutional and personal values, think
critically and creatively about strategic and operational issues, and build a
culture of cooperation and trust.

SOCRATES PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/socrates

This program has provided a forum for emerging young leaders, approximately ages 28-50, from various professions to explore contemporary issues
through expert-moderated dialogue for 20 years. It also provides the opportunity for participants to enter a diverse professional network as well as
the broader range of the Institute’s programs. Its weekend-long seminars in
Aspen, Colorado and abroad, as well as daylong seminars in major US cities,
are values-based Socratic explorations that facilitate the exchange of ideas.
Select recent topics include privacy and technology; social entrepreneurship;
big data; education innovation; the American dream; health reform; China
and US competition; green investing; immigration; new leadership in the
Middle East and North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan; Cuba's economy and
social media; energy security; the economics of happiness; the moral limits of
markets; race and culture; artificial intelligence and the workforce; technology
trends and impact; the sharing economy; and innovation in American cities.

The Aspen Institute Summit on Inequality and Opportunity convened

INSTITUTIONAL ADVANCEMENT
SCHOLARS & SCHOLARSHIPS CAMPAIGN
The Scholars & Scholarships Campaign raised funds to fuel the Institute’s
continued growth and innovation, enable leaders from diverse backgrounds
to participate in our programs, and expand our reach to new regions and
audiences. Thanks to the extraordinary support of our Board of Trustees,
Society of Fellows, and other friends, the Institute met and exceeded the
campaign’s goal in 2015, raising more than $115 million toward the following
organizational priorities:

ELEVATE ARTS AND CULTURE

The campaign secured major endowment gifts for the Arts Program and the
Harman-Eisner Artist in Residence Program, fueling arts outreach to underserved communities and connecting young people from all backgrounds
with inspiring and world-renowned artists and authors.

INSPIRE VALUES-BASED LEADERSHIP

Institute trustee gifts of historic generosity secured critical funding for the
Resnick Aspen Action Forum as well as scholarships to fuel the growth of a
vibrant and interconnected Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN). The
future of the Henry Crown Fellowship Program and the Aspen Institute-Rodel
Fellowship in Public Leadership were assured; and several new fellowships
were launched, including a China Fellowship that is helping shape a generation of Chinese business leaders and entrepreneurs, and fellowships in
finance and healthcare innovation that are based in the United States.

46

INCREASE DIVERSITY AND INNOVATION

Campaign donors established and supported endowed scholarship funds to increase the number of leaders from diverse backgrounds who can participate in
Aspen Institute programming. The campaign also identified donors to provide
seed funding to help launch strategic initiatives that have enriched the Institute’s
offerings, while keeping it at the leading edge on major societal issues.

EXPAND OPEN-MINDED DISCOURSE

The campaign expanded access to the Institute’s signature seminar experiences: the Aspen Seminar, which focuses on the examination of timeless values
and personal leadership; and the Socrates Program, which explores issues
of social concern through open-minded dialogue. Campaign donors also
invested in the Institute’s network of International Partners, thereby enhancing
cross-continental collaboration and fostering relationships that enable broader conversations on global issues. And, closer to home, the Institute partnered
with members of the Society of Fellows and Board of Trustees to expand the
Institute’s footprint through public outreach initiatives and speaker series in
regions where the Institute has not traditionally had a major presence.

PHILANTHROPY IN ACTION

The following is a sampling of the many ways in which Campaign donors enabled the Institute to launch innovative programs, engage with new audiences,
and invest in a new generation of values-based leaders. For a comprehensive
campaign report, please visit www.aspeninstitute.org/campaign.
ASPEN ACROSS AMERICA

brings national thought leaders and the public together with visionaries
around the country where the Institute does not traditionally have a presence,
in order to explore challenges and values through a place-specific lens. For
example, Aspen Across America partnered with the Buffett Early Childhood
Institute in Omaha, Nebraska to host a public panel, “50 Years After Head Start:
Making an Investment in Early Childhood Education in America,” featuring
leading American philanthropists, policymakers, and researchers. The resulting
debate connected global ideas with local solutions, and was followed by an intimate conversation with legendary investor Warren Buffett, in which he shared
lessons from a career that could only have been conducted from Omaha.
ASPEN AROUND TOWN

is an event series that takes place in and around Washington, DC in partnership with outstanding Washington-based cultural institutions. Launched in
2012 and made possible by the support of Michelle Smith and the Robert H.
Smith Family Foundation, the series showcases America’s very best thinking
on a broad range of topics, ranging from race to theology and art to public
service, and features nationally recognized leaders in politics and culture. In
the past year, the program has hosted dialogues on the 100th anniversary of
Einstein’s discovery of General Relativity, Glenn Gould’s Goldberg Variations,
and the manuscripts and early computers of Alan Turing.

“I’ve pledged my life in service to
our great nation and the values it
represents, but until attending the
Executive Seminar, I could not intelligently articulate what those values
were, or how, when, and why they are
in conflict. I can think of no finer experience to impart to those who earn
the privilege of leading our men and
women in uniform. I find it hard to
express the depth of my gratitude to
the Lauder family.”­

The Ricardo Salinas Foundation pledged $1.5 million to support the launch
of the Latinos & Society Program, which creates awareness of the growth and impor-

tance of the Latino community to the future of the United States. The program brings together
Latino and non-Latino influencers and decision-makers to find areas of common ground that
advance issues and policies of importance to Latinos and the country as a whole. This gift also
established the Ricardo Salinas Foundation Scholarship Fund, which increases the number of
Latino participants at the Institute’s public events, policy roundtables, and leadership seminars
and develops the leadership capacity of Latinos to participate fully in all levels of society.

CREATIVE YOUNG LEADERS ALLIANCE

is an initiative of the Aspen Institute Arts Program that is developing a powerful network of emerging artistic leaders across the country. The Alliance uses
the time-tested methods of the Aspen Seminar and works to mobilize young
creative leaders to work across sectors to strengthen the social, physical, and
economic fabric of the communities in which they live.

“As a member of the public sector, the
cost of attending the Socrates Seminar
was out of reach; however, the Salinas
Scholarship created an opportunity for
me to access this experience. The weekend contained amazing pieces—great
staff, thoughtful topics, a majestic setting,
top-notch participants—but the overall
experience was much greater than the
sum of its parts. I am incredibly grateful for the Aspen Institute’s intentional
effort to make the Seminar diverse and
inclusive. I made a deep connection with
fellow participants and know that we can
tackle big issues, together.”
— D. Scott Martinez,
City Attorney, The City of Denver,
Ricardo Salinas Foundation Scholar

In 2016, the Creative Youth Alliance Seminar will take place in cities including
San Francisco, New York, and Chicago, giving students an opportunity to become part of a local and national network of socially minded young artists. In
addition to the work in those and other cities, participants from each city will
be selected to attend the Aspen Ideas Festival for further leadership training
and to connect with influential artists and patrons of the arts.
This new initiative was made possible by Scholars & Scholarships Campaign
gifts from Melva Bucksbaum, the Eisner Foundation, Jane Harman, Lynda and
Stewart Resnick, and members of the Aspen Institute Arts Circle.

Lynda and Stewart Resnick pledged $15 million to fund the
future of the Resnick Aspen Action Forum, an annual event that

convenes leaders from across the United States and the world to combat
today’s most pressing social issues.
The five-day event, held every summer in Aspen, facilitates open dialogue, builds trust, and promotes action. Entrepreneurial leaders from
over 40 countries participate in workshops, interactive roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities that help them tackle challenges
in their communities, countries, and around the world. Each participant
makes a public “Action Pledge” to address a complex social issue.

the Central Valley of California who received scholarships to attend the Aspen Action
Forum in order to acquire the knowledge and networks they need to amplify their
impact and solve problems in their local community. (Photo by Dan Bayer )

“The Resnick Aspen Action Forum is among the Institute’s greatest platforms for
effecting real and measurable change in the world. It is also our most geographically
and demographically diverse annual convening.” — Walter Isaacson, President and CEO, The Aspen Institute
